The dangerous connection between smoking and high cholesterol level has been researched for many years. It is known that the activity of smoking will contribute on the rising of the cholesterol level—it will increase the Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) levels—the bad cholesterols—and decrease the High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL)—the good cholesterols—levels that are certainly dangerous for your health. Smoking will disturb the fat metabolism and endanger the heart and the blood vessels.
Sadly, the danger of high cholesterol is not merely for the active smokers, yet, it also threats the passive smoker. In 2008, M. Maria Glymour, ScD, from Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, Massachusetts found and published her 9 years research on 16,000 healthy women and men in USA. Glymour found that if you did not smoke, but your spouse did smoke, then you had a 42% increase in your chance of having a stroke.
If you are a former smoker, living with a smoker now, you experience a 72% increase in your risk of stroke, when compared to former smokers living with non smokers now. Apparently, if you are already suffering from high cholesterol, then being a passive smoker; breathing in someone else’s smoke could be really dangerous to you. You better stop smoking now, if you are active smoker.
After knowing the dangerous connection between smoke and high cholesterol, you know that your smoking habit will not only endanger your life but also the life of other people who inhale your smoke passively.
